Oct. 21 -- Data Center technology firm Servergy, Inc. announced today the launch of its Cleantech Server line with the new CTS-1000 server, ushering in a new clean and green class of hyper-efficient, high density, high I/O PowerLinux servers. The new PowerLinux server line was unveiled today at the IBM Enterprise Conference in Orlando, Florida. Cleantech Servers are engineered from the ground up with Servergy’s patented Cleantech Architecture on top of the mature, scalable and data center proven Power Architecture to deliver a new compute fabric with very high energy efficiency as well as very high I/O and compute density.
“This is the day we’ve been working and waiting for over the past four years, along with all our many rapidly growing faithful Servergy partners and supporters,” said Servergy founder, chairman and CEO, Bill Mapp. “We went all the way back to the innovations lab drawing board and used a zero-sum step-function engineering approach from the ground up to create the next generation of hyper-efficient enterprise servers – small, fast, efficient, cool, quiet, light-weight, but also powerful and scalable enough to handle the rapidly growing data, space, cooling and energy demands of data center operators globally. To be clear, Cleantech Servers are not another ‘microserver for microjobs’ – these are true industrial grade brawny core servers with very high I/O that are built using our Cleantech Architecture with the mature PowerLinux technology that has already been scaled and proven in the data centers years ago.”
The initial product release in the new Servergy Cleantech Server line, the CTS-1000 server, delivers an industry-leading performance-per-watt PowerLinux server with maximum power used under 130 Watts at full load. It saves up to 16X in server energy and space costs over traditional systems, weighs in at only nine pounds, and packs two 10GB and two 1GB ports in a server with the footprint the size of a legal pad, i.e., less than one-fourth of 1U. The server sports eight (8) brawny cores in a 1.5Ghz Power Architecture SOC processor with up to 2MB CPU cache, 32 GB of memory and six (6) TB storage. It has embedded accelerators, including an advanced encryption engine, networking offload engine and a pattern-matching engine that can be used for big data applications. The new servers are based on Servergy’s patented Cleantech Architecture, built in the USA, and come with a three-year standard warranty.
According to top industry experts, the timing for the launch of the new technology into the data center market for top companies and data centers globally couldn’t be better. Both Data Center Design magazine and Gartner Research recently identified skyrocketing energy demands and costs as the #1 concern for data center operators globally. This is underscored by recent reports of the expensive new $2 billion NSA data center meltdown due to skyrocketing power consumption created by big data. Coupled with the global skyrocketing price of energy, this becomes the biggest problem in this space as the whole world goes online and quickly moves to a smart and connected planet powered by servers. In a report by Digital Realty Trust, the largest data center builder in the world, the #1 reason that data centers look to expand their data center infrastructure is to try to improve energy efficiency.
“Data centers operators globally are searching for answers to their power, cooling and space limitations – all challenges that the CTS-1000 addresses head on,” Mapp said. “Servergy is not just in the business of selling servers. Our ultimate goal is to create and deliver clean and green data center solutions that leverage the power and potential of technology at its best to positively impact all the triple bottom line 3-Ps of People, Profits and Planet. It’s all in our brand tagline and promise – Save Energy. Work Smarter.”
Servergy is an IBM Business Partner, and the only other company besides IBM offering Linux-on-Power servers. “Servergy is proud to be a leading contributor in the global Open Power movement and a Gold Sponsor of this year’s IBM Enterprise Conference,” said Mapp. “The IBM PowerLinux platform is ideally suited for compute intensive workloads – the Servergy PowerLinux platform complements this and is ideally suited as a clean and green high-density, high I/O accelerator for I/O intensive workloads, such as big data, the cloud, caching and storage applications.” Servergy has begun taking pre-orders for the first product in its Cleantech Server line, with the CTS-1000 expected to begin deliveries late 4Q 2013.
